In my position as the Chairman of the Elders Council of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Igweocha -  Biafraland, hereby lend my voice to that of the Executive Governors of Rivers and Delta States, amongst other eminent sons/daughters of the South-South region, to totally join forces with IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in expeditiously, restoring the sovereign nation of Biafra.

In one of the recent speeches credited to the Delta State Governor, Dr. Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, he pointedly stated amongst other issues, that the very day the South-South region decides to join the Biafra restoration struggle, Nigeria as a country, will definitely divide. It is also true to state here that the Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Ezebunwo Wike, had in one of his speeches, spoken in favor of the unfettered restoration of the sovereignty of the nation of Biafra, when he said that Nigeria as a nation, is gradually sinking.

In a related development, the Delta State Governor, Dr. Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa stressed that some regions in Nigeria, were being oppressed and marginalized. He maintained that the principle of federal character cum ethnicity, have been grossly compromised by the Hausa-Fulani controlled Nigerian government. It is without disputation that the Fulani tribe particularly, has predominantly being in firm control of both the political and security apparatus of the country dating back to 1966.

It is expedient here to put the South-South region on notice that there presently exists, grave injustice against our people because the crude oil deposits explored and exploited in the region is being steadily employed in massive developments of every other part of Nigeria while the gold deposits amongst other valuable solid minerals in Zamfara State in the Northern region, have been preserved for the exclusive control/benefit of some Northern cabals and Army Generals. These have their private companies issued licences to mine these resources by the Northern authority (oligarchy) since the last ten years. Despite the fact that the Nigerian government blatantly uses our God-given crude oil to develop the entire country, our children who graduate from the Universities are helplessly roaming the streets of our cities searching for unavailable jobs, their Northern counterparts with  even substandard qualifications, quickly get employed in highly prospective companies/offices.

It is important therefore, to bring to the knowledge of the people of the South-South region, the way and manner our beloved brother and former Nigerian President - Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan, was disgracefully removed from office in 2015, because he came from the "BORN TO SERVE REGION" and not from "BORN TO RULE REGION", as claimed. This is the policy of enslavement, humiliation and injustice being persistently meted on us, our resources which are being used to develop the entire country, nonetheless.

Let me also remind us of our eminently courageous and illustrious sons, the late comrade Kenule Saro-Wiwa and eight others from Ogoni Province of Biafraland. They were gruesomely murdered by the Federal Government of Nigeria under the military dictatorship of late General Sani Abacha, based primarily on their demand for their constitutional rights of self-determination which is "OGONI KINGDOM". UDI COMMUNITY in Bayelsa State has a bitter taste of history as the indigenes both old and young were almost obliterated from the face of the planet earth during the administration of former Nigerian President -Olusegun Obasanjo, for justly placing a demand for their constitutional rights.

As the IPOB Igweocha Province Chairman, let me further notify us that the Northerners also arrogantly lay claim of ownership of the vast crude oil deposits in our region. That is principally the reason behind their tight control of the proceeds emanating from the sales of the product which are being channeled into massive developmental efforts in their area. Some British government officials are being used to heavily lobby the International Community against the restoration effort of the Biafra nation. It is also noteworthy to state here that the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,  gave a promise that the capital city of the Biafra nation will be built in Igweocha Province here in the South-South region. The IPOB leader also promised one hundred percent (100℅) resource control of the Provinces, of whatever nature has endowed them with for the betterment of our people. These promises were made during one of his rallies across Biafraland before the criminal/murderous invasion of his residence on the 14th of September 2017, by the Nigerian military.

In view of the above, I very respectfully bring to our knowledge and understanding that the time we are presently in, is really appropriate for us to come together and synergize as a people with the exceptionally courageous, trusted, reliable, disciplined, highly enlightened and intelligent IPOB leader - Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to fully restore the great Biafra nation of our dream and that, without further delay. Beneath are the reasons for urgency viz:-

* The glaring danger of Fulanization/Islamization agenda and the war of Islamic conquest.

* The born to rule mentality of the Fulanis.

* The arrogant claim of the Fulanis of their right of ownership of our God-given vast natural resources (crude oil and gas).

* The killing of some of our eminent/illustrious sons (Ken Saro-Wiwa and others), from Ogoni Province.

* The agenda of humiliation, enslavement, killing of our people and the colonisation of our land.

* The exclusive reserve of gold/other solid minerals in Zamfara State in the North for pure egocentric usage.

* Self enrichment with the massive proceeds realized from the sales of our God-given crude oil and gas.

* Marginalization and gross abuse of the Federal Character Principle.

* Blatant wave of injustice and nepotism (tribalism and ethnicity) prevalently being practiced today in Nigeria against Biafrans.

* The natural resources God endowed us with as a primary blessing as a people, is today being shared as a national cake to the advantage of others while the solid mineral deposits in Zamfara State in the North is exclusively used to better the lives of the privileged cabals, their families and close associates.

* The murderous orgy of military sponsored violence/killings visited on our brethren in Udi community, Bayelsa State, for daring to place rightful and just demands for the benefits accruable to them from their God-given resources.

* The blunt refusal of the Nigerian government to allow us as a people, to freely exercise control over our God-given resources for our betterment and that of our upcoming generations.

Exhaustively considering the above listed points therefore, I hereby sincerely advise that the South-South region should unite and wholesomely join forces with the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) globally, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to totally and completely get our dear nation Biafra, restored. I also use this medium to clearly state that if the people of the South-South region fail however, to exit Nigeria alongside their Biafra kiths and kins, we will forever live to regret losing this golden opportunity and privilege freely offered to us. We should very carefully weigh the corresponding consequences of intimidation, oppression, servitude, affliction, devastation and death for the next one hundred (100) years, remaining with the Islamic terrorists and vandals in a country like Nigeria.

God forbids!
